Sir Thomas Rich’s successful once again in EDF Energy Cup

Sir Thomas Rich’s successful once again in EDF Energy Cup
It was another great afternoon of rugby in the EDF Energy Cup at Kingsholm on Wednesday afternoon, with Sir Thomas Rich's and Marling School coming out on top in their respective finals.

The U14 Plate took place between Marling School and Chosen Hill School. Chosen Hill had previously beaten Bournside, Winchcome and Beaufort to reach Kingsholm, while Marling had beaten Cotswold School & Dene Magna.

The game was played with great intent from both sides, producing lots of try scoring opportunities early on. Chosen Hill had the lion’s share of possession in the first half before Marling got themselves back into it with a try.

The second half was closely fought between both sides but the match was decided when Captain and Man of the Match Archie Powis dived over under the posts.

The Marling School no.7 was busy all afternoon, making tackle after tackle and constantly providing his team with belief throughout the whole match. Chosen Hill were great opponents and did their school proud with their performance, but Marling School came out on top 12-10.

The U14 Cup took place between Sir Thomas Rich’s School and The Crypt School. Tommies had previously beaten Balcarras, Five Acres & Kingshill, while Crypt had previously beaten Tewkesbury, Pates (qualified for first try scored) & Churchdown.

Both sides played some fantastic rugby with Crypt leading two tries to nil after the first 20 minutes or so. Crypt’s fly half Wyatt Dundas was controlling the game and putting his team mates into space throughout the whole first half.

However, half time saw a different Sir Thomas Rich’s side return to the pitch. Jasper Elliot, Tommies fly-half and also Man of the Match, started to take control of the game with his awareness and intent to play from his own 22.

He placed winger Ellis Beech into space a couple of times during the second period, one of which saw the winger glide up field for a superb individual break before offloading to his team mate to get the score.

The game finished with a final score of 22-19 to Sir Thomas Rich’s.
